Journalist Daniel Storey has claimed that Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti will sense an “opportunity” in their upcoming game against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
During the next round of Premier League fixtures, the Toffees will travel to Molineux to face the Old Gold in an 8:15pm kick-off on Tuesday night (per Premier League).
The Toffees go into the game off the back of a 2-1 victory against Championship side Rotherham United in the FA Cup following an extra-time winner from Abdoulaye Doucoure (per BBC).
Meanwhile, Nuno Espirito Santo’s side also secured safe passage into the competition’s fourth round with a 1-0 win against Crystal Palace.
In the latest episode of The Totally Football Show, Storey discussed Everton’s game against the Millers and claimed Ancelotti will sense an “opportunity” against Wolves. (37:14)
He said: “They were dismal against Rotherham. That’s another game that I watched that was not hugely enjoyable to watch – they were really poor.
“Again, [it was] a completely different team. [Ancelotti] rested Richarlison [and Dominic] Calvert-Lewin, they will both, obviously, come back in [against Wolves].
“I think at the moment, there’s a sense that you can maybe just get at Wolves, there’s no disaster and it’s not that Nuno has taken them as far as he can or anything so dramatic as that.
“They just seem to be slightly drifting, so, Ancelotti will see that as an opportunity.”
TIF Thoughts on what Daniel Storey said about Everton’s game against Wolves…
As can be seen in what the journalist had to say, he believes that Ancelotti will sense an “opportunity” against the Old Gold because they are “slightly drifting” at the moment.
Would you say that Everton are favourites for the game against Wolves?
Yes, we are comfortably
No, it's not a given
Over their past seven games in the Premier League, Nuno Santo’s side has only managed to pick up one win and they have lost four over that period (per Transfermarkt).
So, it does seem that the Old Gold are certainly there for the taking at the moment, especially with the Toffees having won four of their last five games in the top flight.
